Gloria J Zucaro's "Making Croissants & Bunz"

This week I am doing Jenn's challenge of "Shadows" at The Artist Playroom first thing!  I started my drawing with the Diva's challenge of a tangle called "Bunzo" first.  It is the beginning shape of all the croissants.  Then it morphed into a whole scene with lots of shadows!  I did however, also do a traditional tangle, see below the text for Croissants.
5"H x 7"W greeting card, or it may be framed in a 5x7 frame.  It comes with an envelope.
$6.00  To Purchase.    Click on image to enlarge.
This is done with a Sakura Micron Pen # 01 and my Inktense Watercolor Pencils.  I put the colors on the paper dry, then sprayed the surface with water.  I then added more color where necessary, or smooth some areas out.              Next is my 3.5"Square with the "Bunzo" tangle used in a more traditional way.  I also used "Holibaugh"and "Fescue."

  1. great shadows gloria, thanks for entering. I so want one of those croissants, every time I see them I wish I'd gone to Paris before this year happened, finding out I can't have wheat. :o(

    I'll have to see if I can find an adequate recipe for gluten free croissants!!

  10. So glad I made a sandwich for lunch before I sat down to snoop around here, or I'd be off to the shops for croissant. And a ham and cheese one at that! Haha. Fab shadows and I love the tangle too :0)

  15. Food definitely can be very inspiring! Nice interpretation of the 'shadow' theme. I notice you used Inktense pencils on your croissants piece. I've recently discovered the Inktense pencils and am having lots of fun playing around with them, so it was nice to see someone else using them, too! : )

  16. What a delicious picture of the croissants on the kitchen table. This is such a lovely atmosphere and I wish I could be there.
    The colors meet the shadows perfectly!

  19. I love your original idea for using Bunzo. It reminds me of lollipops with lifesavers at the base... and bonus fescu, which is one of my all-time favourites. I have a soft spot for "whimsy". Your tile made me smile. Nice work!
